Nexen: Zero Backlash Geared Bearings

June 19, 2019

Unlike some cam driven systems, the Precision Ring Drive Systems can start and stop at any incremental position. Users can change the motion profile by simply loading a new servo drive program. The Precision Ring Drive System also allow maximum acceleration or deceleration at any point without the risk of damage.

Based on Nexen’s innovative Roller Pinion technology, the Roller Pinion System Geared Bearing (RPS-GB) comes complete with a precision zero backlash gear mounted and dialed in on a precision grade high capacity bearing.

With many possible sizes and gear ratios, all with zero backlash, the Nexen Geared Bearing can be incorporated into any precision rotary motion control application.


•  Zero backlash

•  Extremely high accuracy

•  Lube free operation


•  Mount equipment & cabling through center opening


•  Threaded hole mounting

•  Through hole mounting

•  Piloting options


•  Supports significant loads


•  Pinions compatible with common gearboxes
